Publisher's Summary

Rita Mae Brown and her feline coauthor Sneaky Pie Brown return with this 27th book in their best-selling Mrs. Murphy series, in which mysteries of past and present Albemarle County, Virgina, continue to converge. 

"Harry" Haristeen and her friends and animal companions pursue the threads of a mystery dating back to Virginia's post-Revolutionary past, introduced in A Hiss Before Dying, while their 18th century predecessors continue to struggle with the challenges of the fledgling country. Harry's new friendship with Marvella Lawson, doyenne of the Richmond art establishment, will lead her back to her own artistic and academic interests, providing both personal pleasure and creative fulfillment - and new clues to current crimes!

#27: Probable Claws is the 4th in a 4 book series

I have listened to almost all of this series in order and have just finished the last available book, #27. I feel it very important to let listeners know that 4 - from Tail Gate, Tall Tail, A Hiss Before Dying and Probable Claws should actually have one title followed by 1,2,3,4 as they are intricately connected. If you try to listen to anything out of order you will be lost.
Please go to the review for Book 24- Tail Gait - as I wrote it after I finished Probable Claws. It will give the complete review of all 4 books.

Don’t Bother unless you have read the first one!

I had read other books by this author and still could NOT keep straight on which characters are animals and which are human. I am a horse lover, live on a farm and am passionate about my pets but still could not “get into” this one. Gave up less than half-way through.

Disappointed

There was to much going back in time for an unconnected storyline. I found my mind wondering through this sections. Too little about Harry, her pets, friends and husband. Seemed like a short story with unrelated filler. As a long-term reader of this series by Rita Mae Brown I felt cheated.
